In the movie "Spinal Tap" the band had a stage set made that was a replica of Stonehenge.  How tall was the stage set replica?

Just checking in to see if anyone had either responded to the Spinal Tap triva question or posted some new stuff.

The Spinal Tap replica of Stonehenge was build only 18" tall in error.  It was susposed to be 18' tall.

What were the sizes of Ringo's first set of the Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl drums?

RINGO’S LUDWIG KIT 1963


Purchased from Drum City in London (Shop owned by Ivor Arbiter)

DRUMS  finished in Oyster Black Pearl:
 
   5.5"X14" Jazz Fesitval Model Snare
    8"x12" tom
   14"x14" floor tom
   14"x20" bass drum

HARDWARE:

Speed King bass drum pedal (Model 201)
Flat base cymbal stand (Model 1400) A Premier Lockfast cymbal stand was sometimes used in place of a Ludwig model 1400
Flat base snare drum stand (Model 1363)
Spurlock Direct-Pull hi-hat stand (Model 1123)
Bass drum anchor (Model 1304) Walberg & Auge
Buck Roger's snare stand (Model1358)
Ringo's Ludwig Downbeat kit was retro-fitted with a Rogers Swiv-o-matic tom mount.
Rocket model throne[/li][/list]

CYMBALS?Huh?

It is generally accepted that Ringo played Zildjian Cymbals. 14” hi-hats, 18” Medium thin crash, and an 18” or 20” ride. This is further evidenced by the fact that Don Bennett’s Drum Studio in Bellevue, Washington actually has Ringo’s “original” hi hat, and crash cymbals. We also know that Ringo plays Zildjians today.

There is however evidence that exists that maybe Ringo didn’t always play Zildjians.In Ringo’s expense reports from 1961 - 1963 there is an entry where Ringo purchased a set of Swiss made Paiste Cymbals. This entry is made about the same time that Ringo purchased his Ludwig kit. It would have been easier to obtain the Paiste Cymbals at that time. Ludwig distributed Paiste Cymbals.

 
Also, with Ringo spending so much time in Germany and Sweden, it would have made the Paiste Cymbals much easier to obtain than the Zildjians. Expense records indicate that he purchased Paiste Cymbal, but Don Bennett has an original Zildjian 18” Medium Crash Cymbal with Paul’s inscription to Ringo!

I, personally, don't find it hard to believe that he had several cymbals that he chose from.

At Woodstock did Joe Cocker forget the lyrics or was he hammered....or both?  You decide.  Grin

I wasn't aware that another band had shattered the Manowar record of 139 db.  I don't know how the audience survived to tell about it either.

Kiss, while on tour last year, was ordered to turn down after they reached 136 db.

When you posted the question, I was thinking that someome had broken that record.  I should have left that question alone for a while so the other readers could offer some guesses.  Sorry I messed up the fun of this thread.  Embarrassed

You know 90 db is freakin' loud.  That's typically the legal limit in many venues.  I can't imagine my ears being to handle 100+ db.  Roll Eyes

Johnathan, I know the answer, but as previously stated I am staying out of this so others can have fun with this thread. 

Boo Boo McAfee is a Nashville drummer and friend who actually invented (along with Craig Alan) the DRUMOMETER that is used to determine the speed of drum strokes.  I have tried out this device and it is absolutely amazing how it works.  This device is accepted by the Guinness World Records officials as the official device for this new “sport”.  I invite others to check out more about the Drumometer and Boo Boo.

Hi,

       The fastest drummer on record is Sticks Snerby.  He was clocked at 7652 strokes a second.  Unfortunately just before the official records could be entered into the holy stroke record book, Sticks Snerby and the records vanished.  It's a mystery to this day.

Tony Williams?  but we never got the E-Street answer.  Embarrassed

If I am correct then my question is:

Who was the highest paid performer in the 1970s -1980's up until his death?

I will give you a clue.  Rhinestone Piano.

Hi,

       That one's an easy one.  Liberace of course.  He taught Elvis how to dress.

OK,  here's my question:  Why did the Dave Clark Five stomp their feet in "Bits and Pieces"?
